Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its best features. The facility was given a grade of C in this category. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
