Short-term Care Quality
Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care rating this year. We gave it a B- in that area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this facility's bottom of the barrel overall grade. In fact, it received a grade of C in this category. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means it avoided the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home's received a low-end long-term care grade where it was given an F. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
The final category we scored is nursing, where this nursing home received an abysmal score in this category also. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is definitely very concerning. In computing our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
