Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another strong feature for this facility is that it was given a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, this proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Finally, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics.
