Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, we were not 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.

Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable short-term care grade. Even though this wasn't as elite as some of its other grades, this is truly not a major area of concern.

This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses.

The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community.
