Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
Even though we graded this facility extremely poorly overall, it earned a more respectable long-term care score this year. We gave it a B- in that category. Long-term care scores are essential for patients in need of non-healthcare services such as personal care. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our short-term care grade, which really isn't a bad grade. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This number is far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Turning the last category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection scores are based on a facility's recent government inspection reports. We gave this facility a D in this category, which is a very weak grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, we also need to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines totaling over $100,000. This usually suggests that a facility's bad track record spanned more than one year.
