The Virginia Home is in the densely populated metropolitan area of Richmond, Virginia which has a population of 364,141 people. We gave this nursing home an overall rating of B which is a quality overall rating. Consequently, it graded out better than the vast majority of the nursing homes in Richmond by a wide margin. Even in a city offering 10 nursing homes, this facility turns out to be a respectable selection. The best part of this facility's impressive profile was its inspection grade.

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned first-rate government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in this category, with an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other achievements is its top-shelf long-term care score. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in that category, with a grade of A. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. This nursing home really knocked it out of the park in this area.
Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality measures, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding serious falls is typically an accurate indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home received an acceptable short-term care score of C. Our short-term care grades are likely most important for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
