Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a patient more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't grade out too badly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a B- in that area, which ended up being another one of its more respectable scores. In forming our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

This facility really didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. We awarded it a C for that category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility had 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you this facility avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility was given a rock bottom score in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 51.351353 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
