Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. 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. This facility had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that this facility dodged the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given an F for its long-term care grade. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal 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 residents. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 99.32886 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Based on its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home.
The final category we scored is nursing, where this facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
