Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our short-term care category. This is one of our higher grades. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
