To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall score. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we gave them a B in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. In computing our nursing ratings, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility really didn't fare very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this was its worst area. In forming our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 43.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
