Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. We assessed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next highest category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's personal care rather than the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 97.31344 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care, which is this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in that category. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is frequently a fair assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade this poor in this category, we were not stunned to discover this facility was below average in multiple staffing figures we focus on. It offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
