Registered Staff Hours
In addition to 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 computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency related data for this nursing home, it ended up being difficult to fully evaluate it in the area of inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B. It outpaced most facilities in this area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services.
