Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a C. Short-term care grades are important for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next area, this nursing home really did not perform well. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this was this facility's poorest category grade. Nursing homes that don't score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 63.42183 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points less than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
