Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most meaningful for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Sadly, this nursing home's next best category was inspections, but even there it earned a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. In calculating our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in that area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 85.87786 percent of its patients. This is several points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
