Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Not having any deficiencies proved to be this place's best achievement.

This facility's next best area ended up being its short-term care score, where it received a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing.

This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 44.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in two of the metrics we look at, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are usually good measures of the quality of nursing care available.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 94.96124 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.33 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
