When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the facility.

We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. To our surprise, this facility was assessed a category J through K deficiency, which are some of the worst possible deficiencies. This typically indicates the government inspectors found a deficiency which placed patient safety or health in immediate danger. Finally, they also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Switching gears to the final area, this facility was given a grade of C for long-term care, which is an acceptable rating.
