To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
This facility's second best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Nursing grades are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we look at quality-based statistics, such as the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These datapoints are measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third best area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are often employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 43.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a very poor grade. This is clearly a major disappointment. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.4359 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
