Registered Staff Hours
On top of being an elite facility overall, this facility also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few places fared this well in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given an A+ for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
