Short-term Care Quality
Even though this nursing home's overall grade wasn't great, it actually received a good grade in our short-term care rating. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. This one of its few redeeming features. In determining our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. The nursing rating weighs many datapoints, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. Inspection scores weigh many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, we also want to point out that this place received significant government fines in recent years of more than $50,000. This typically indicates that inspectors grew tired after several years of bad government inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated just 49.18033 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
