Registered Staff Hours
On top of having a decent overall grade, we also want to point out that this nursing home received favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area, with a B+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Additionally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded positive short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in that category, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest score. In our short-term care category, we try to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
