Short-term Care Quality
Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care rating. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. Unfortunately, this was not enough to salvage its overall profile. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
As it turns out, its inspection reports were not the source of this facility's rock bottom overall grade. In fact, it earned a C in this category. Our inspection grades are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. To our surprise, this facility was hit with a category J through K deficiency, which are among the worst possible categories of deficiencies. This typically means that the government inspectors found a deficiency which placed resident safety or health in immediate danger. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
