Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections ended up being its best category. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a impressive short-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being this facility's second most impressive category grade. In that area, this facility received a grade of A. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Our long-term care grade is used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record.
