Long-term Care Quality
While this nursing home's overall score was not favorable, it actually earned a very good score in long-term care. We gave it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better grades. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Surprisingly, this facility actually earned a good score in inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Few facilities that were this poor overall earned multiple category grades of this caliber. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are presumably most important for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as 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. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The final category we assessed is nursing, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal grade in this category also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely a major concern. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
