Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this proved to be a decent facility is it earned a very favorable inspection score. In this area, we gave this facility a B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This facility was given its next most favorable category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category, which is a decent grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
