Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home'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 scores in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
