The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A-. Inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This proved to be the nursing home's second highest grade. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these scores hurt this facility's nursing rating significantly.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category was short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Our short-term care ratings are likely more critical for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility did not fare well here either. We found that just 48.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
