Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its favorable overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received quality marks in the area of short-term care. As a result, it received one of our most impressive grades in that category with a grade of A+. Our short-term care scores are arguably most meaningful for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
