Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an C. Our nursing score weighs quite a few datapoints, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning patients even once per day.

This rating is often a reliable measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

The last category we assessed is long-term care. It received an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 77.114426 percent of its residents. This is many points below average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
