Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's low-end long-term care grade where it was given a lowly F. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility administered the vaccine to just 55.813953 percent of its patients, which is not a very encouraging sign. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This particular facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This number is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel score in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely a major concern. Our short-term care scores are probably most meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms 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. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
