Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either.
