Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home fared very well in our short-term care rating. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
