Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid facilities that have too many deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

This facility's second most favorable area is its long-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of C. Long-term care grades are pivotal for prospective residents in need of personal care.

Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.632355 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital.

The final category we graded was short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. With a score in this range in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assess. It provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
