In calculating our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+ in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher scores. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more meaningful for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home.

Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.21875 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Lastly, turning to inspections, we gave this nursing home a C. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's government inspections. Inspection grades are tied to several data points located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to patient health or safety. We did not find anything on this place's inspection reports to be overly alarming.
