To go along with its favorable overall score, we gave this place an A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health.

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. The nursing category is based on many datapoints, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a patient even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, this nursing home did not perform well. With a poor grade of F in that area, this is obviously its poorest category. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is generally a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. In this facility's case, it looks like it provides fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
