To pair with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. This is far better than its overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. It does not look like we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having complete deficiency related data for this facility, it was a challenge to really evaluate the place in this category.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Our nursing rating analyzes many components, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as minimizing major falls. This facility performed admirably in this area. Avoiding serious falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

This nursing home's third highest area ended up being short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home really didn't perform very well. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this was its poorest category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to find this place's vaccination data. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
