Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's best category grade came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our short-term care scores are probably most critical for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
This facility also excelled in our nursing category, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Maryland in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development is the F this facility was given in the category of long-term care. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 71.61125 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Turning our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. Unfortunately, with an F in the inspection category, this nursing home's overall grade was pulled down significantly. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We would scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we also want to point out that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This typically signifies that a nursing home's bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
