Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this facility's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second highest score. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records.
