Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home earned near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. Nursing scores are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas.

In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services.

Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

The final category we scored was nursing, ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. This really was one of the couple of dings of a strong profile. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important.
