Registered Staff Hours

Inspection scores are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention 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. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.

This facility wound up receiving a an abysmal grade in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective 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 patients. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 99.38461 percent of its residents, which is a very solid figure. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we graded was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor score. The nursing grade includes quite a few components, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
