The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care score ended up being one of its better features. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a significantly lower hospitalization rate than the majority of nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this category. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most critical for folks requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that just 48.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This nursing home's least impressive category is nursing, which is the last area we looked at. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category. Even with several acceptable scores in other areas, this score is still alarming so we felt obligated to make a note of it. The nursing score includes a variety of data points. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place also had abysmal scores in several of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hour totals. For starters, we looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than double the national average in this statistic. This is quite concerning when you consider that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the nursing home's fate of receiving a weak nursing rating.
