Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home received a decent overall rating, its inspections score is notably more impressive than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
