Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing score is mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, we gave this nursing home a D in the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's worst category rating. Short-term care ratings are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
