Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. This place was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to note that this facility received favorable short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest score. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average figure. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations.
