Short-term Care Quality
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care score this year. We gave it a B- in that category, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we found for this place. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This nursing home really didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category. Other aspects of its profile turned out to be the source of this facility's rock bottom overall grade. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This means it dodged the more serious classes of deficiencies. Lastly, we need to point out that this nursing home has received government fines recently. We were relieved to find that these fines were not on the high end as government fines go. That said, this is still not what you hoped to see.

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom score here also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated only 89.28571 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
