Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have too many severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which is actually one of its better category grades. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.57014 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade is mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 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 measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care. It received an F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this facility provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
