While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it was a challenge to really assess the place in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't grade out poorly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a B- for that area, which wound up being among its higher grades. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, this facility really did not perform well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Long-term care grades 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. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding vaccinations. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
