We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection rating exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. 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 had positive view of this facility's inspections.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. When determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are likely more critical for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this also affected quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
