Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without the information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it ended up being difficult to really grade it in terms of this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few facilities performed better in this area. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
