In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the nursing home's second best grade. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities.

Long-term Care Quality

In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.07407 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
The final category we looked at was inspections. This ended up being this nursing home's worst grade. We gave it a D in this category. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our assessment. Our inspection scores factor in many items on the facility's inspection reports. When you find severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular nursing home was assessed a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to patients. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This often means that a bad track record has been an issue for several years.
