Short-term Care Quality
We just could not find anything positive to say about this nursing home. It received a lowly D for short-term care. Sadly, this turned out to be its best grade. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its abysmal rating in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
We wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its inspection score. An F in this category is particularly troublesome because it usually points to red flags on the nursing home's government inspection reports. For facilities with bad inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we would like to point out that this facility received significant government fines amounting to more than $100,000. This typically means that a facility'spoor track record spanned multiple years.
