While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously a major concern. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
