Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that category. Sadly, this proved to be its second best grade.

Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was short-term care, which proved to be a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a D for the area of short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we were not shocked to discover this nursing home was well below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. The facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
