Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility also received excellent government inspections recently. We awarded it one of our best grades in that area, with an A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. Our short-term care ratings are important for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy.

On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

A facility is doing something right when it's weakest grade still rates higher than most nursing homes. The nursing rating is based on many data points, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.
