Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a positive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
