Registered Staff Hours
The main 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 score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its second highest category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is an acceptable grade. In determining our long-term care scores, we assess the personal care received by a facility's patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.35683 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last category, this nursing home really didn't perform very well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this was its poorest category grade. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score in this range in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this nursing home was well below average in the two key staffing figures we focus on. It provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
