Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to note that this facility received strong short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second highest grade. Our short-term care scores are important for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
