Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning residents even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. This was one of the few weak links of a very solid report card. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
