Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a B-. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
