Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next best area was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
