Although this nursing home's overall grade was terrible, it actually fared pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating and that actually wound up as its next highest category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. There are several datapoints included in this area. Many of these datapoints reflect nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
