To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for its inspection grade. This is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home a score of D. The nursing grade considers a number of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This place averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
