Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's rock-bottom long-term care grade where it was given an F. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.2 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. There are numerous factors within this category. Many of these criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
