Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it earned a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it was awarded a favorable short-term care score. In fact, this proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more important for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
