Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we want to note its relatively favorable long-term care score this year. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 78.76106 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. The nursing score includes numerous factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.

This nursing home's second lowest category is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a well below average grade. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. When a facility has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. At the end of the day, there just were not many highlights for this place in this area.
