The primary 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 this facility an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.4375 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is often a reliable measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The last category we looked at was nursing. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a significant disappointment. When computing our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
