Registered Staff Hours
We would like to point out that this facility's inspection grade exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Short-term care scores are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
