While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving a rock-bottom grade in our short-term care area. It was given an F in this area. In our short-term care score, we try to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We were surprised to find that it performed better in this area, with 50.2 percent of its patients returning home. This was just about this nursing home's sole highlight in this category.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. The nursing rating features a variety of subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this measure.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final category, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 93.965515 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. To our surprise, this facility also was not as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 1.86 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad due to it having more complex patients.
