Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.

Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
