Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded them a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Naturally, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree.
