Registered Staff Hours
To go along with a great overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A for inspections. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A. Not many nursing homes fared better in this category. Our short-term care grades are critical for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
