The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

This facility's short-term care score is one of its better features. The nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes.

Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a respectable grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of C. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.88 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final category we graded is nursing, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this facility a D in that area. This was one of the few weak links of an otherwise strong report card. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. On top of receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this place was less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and found this facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
