Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. There are many factors within this grade. Many of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to find that this nursing home earned a somewhat respectable short-term care grade this year. We awarded it a C in that category. Short-term care grades are generally employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's third highest category is long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat poorly. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
In the final category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection scores are based on a facility's recent government inspections. We gave this facility a D in this category, which is a very poor grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed significant government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This often indicates that a bad performance spanned several years.
