Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent grade in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Long-term care ratings are crucial for people seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable score. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
The last area we scored was nursing, turned out to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
