Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent facility is that it earned a very favorable inspection grade. In this area, we gave this facility a B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Based on this, we had positive view of this facility's recent inspections.
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. Nursing grades are mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of C. In computing our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is generally a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is obviously a significant concern. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 90.2834 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
