The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

The next most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
The final area we analyzed was nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of C in this category. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
