Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area, with an A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a C. In our long-term care category, we weigh the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as well as some quality metrics. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.89197 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The final category we assessed is nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in this category. Of course, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. Our nursing grade includes quite a few data points, however, the main one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
