Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This facility also was given a positive score in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B in that category.

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is short-term care. We gave this facility a D in the area of short-term care, rendering this the facility's weakest area. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home.
