Although this place's overall grade was not a highlight, it did receive a very good score in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed admirably in this metric. Avoiding major falls is generally an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a respectable grade in the category of long-term care, with a grade of B-. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 86.42857 percent of its patients. Next, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Although it had 2.59 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was more favorable.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. In computing these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this facility was subpar in two of the key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 37.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
