Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility 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-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

An additional strong feature for this facility is that it received a favorable short-term care score. In fact, this wound up being its second best category grade. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation.

Our long-term care grades are essential for residents requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care.
