Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a horrible overall grade, we gave it an A for our inspections score. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 99.591835 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

This nursing home ended up receiving a a terrible grade in our short-term care area. It received an F in this area. Short-term care grades are often employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Given its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
The next area we rated is nursing. We gave it an F for this category, which is a very poor score. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
