Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in this area with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. It does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
