The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.45355 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

This nursing home's next most favorable category was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this category. In crafting these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities with 50.3 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.

The final category we analyzed was nursing. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category, leaving this as the nursing home's weakest area. Our nursing score weighs a host of data points. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. On top of its below average nursing hours, this facility also earned suboptimal marks in many of the quality-based metrics we considered in calculating our nursing ratings. We found that more of this facility's patients sustained falls which led to serious injury.
