Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a positive grade in short-term care. This nursing home received a B in this category, which turns out to be one of our more impressive scores. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home.
