Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also received a strong short-term care score. As a matter of fact, we gave them a B+ in this area, which is one of our better. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.
