Long-term Care Quality
This place fared well in long-term care. We gave it a grade of B for that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 85.454544 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Interestingly, this facility's terrible overall grade can't really be attributed to its inspection reports. We awarded it a C for our inspections category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you this facility dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

This rating is typically a meaningful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The last category we looked at is nursing. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in that area. In computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. With a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
