Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's second best score was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home's received a rock-bottom long-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 78.43137 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Moving on to our final category, this facility did not perform very well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. The nursing score features a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This particular place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
