Although we gave this nursing home a horrible overall score, we gave it an A- for our inspections score. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without having access to the deficiency data, it ended up being a challenge to evaluate this facility in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this wound up being one of its better grades. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is slightly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
