Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The second best area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
Turning to our fourth category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for nursing. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
