Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by these figures.

The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community.
