Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care grade, which was actually one of its higher category scores. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.
