Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is short-term care. In this category, we gave this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This actually is this nursing home's least impressive category. Our short-term care grade is often employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
