Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for that area, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating considers many factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility was awarded a grade of B- for short-term care, which is generally a decent score. Our short-term care grade is typically used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
