Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A+. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its next highest category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a respectable grade. In the area of long-term care, we look at the quantity of services provided by a facility, as opposed to more sophisticated services. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a C. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The final area we looked at is nursing. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area. The nursing score consists of many subcategories, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
