Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. With a score in this range for this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was below average in several staffing figures we looked at. In fact, it provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was long-term care. This nursing home's was given an abysmal long-term care score where it received a lowly F. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
The next area we looked at is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a poor grade. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this area. With a meager 2.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
