Long-term Care Quality
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned a better long-term care rating this year. We gave it a B- in that category. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 93.65854 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we anticipated but still a decent figure. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This facility really didn't perform horribly in the category of inspections. We awarded it a C for that category. Other categories were the source of its abysmal overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This tells you that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

This nursing home also didn't perform terribly in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is another one its better scores. Our nursing rating assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. 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. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is short-term care, which was this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in this area. In forming these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
