Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This place was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care score ended up being one of its respectable scores. The nursing home was given a C in this category. Our long-term care scores are based on the facility's amount of nursing care. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest category turned out to be its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
The next area we looked at was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in that category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Nursing grades are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area.
