Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have too many severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively positive inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is considered to be a solid measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
