Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second best area ended up being short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. Short-term care ratings are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations.
