Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. There are many datapoints included in this category. Most of these factors relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility received its next most favorable category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable score. Our long-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's volume of care. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 96.819786 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable statistic. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its poor rating in this area, we were not shocked to find that this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
