Long-term Care Quality
Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we awarded it a strong score in the area of long-term care, where it received a B. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 94.244606 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This facilities third most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Moving on the last category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility had one deficiency by CMS. We were relieved to find that it was not in a category that suggests that it caused a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, we would like to point out that this place received large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This often indicates that a bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
