Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a strong facility overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Adding to this nursing home's list of achievements, it also was given a top-shelf long-term care score. We gave them an elite strong of A- in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis.

The final category we assessed ended up being this facility's worst category. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a decent grade of C for short-term care. Our short-term care grades are presumably most critical for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
