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 couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Our last category is long-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a C in that category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores.
