Registered Staff Hours

These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded an impressive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility a better than average grade of B+ in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.611115 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility an impressive grade of D. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, we gave this facility a D in the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. Sadly, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. In computing these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this facility's case, it looks like it offers less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
