Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned an impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving a bottom of the barrel score in our short-term care area. It received an F in this category. Short-term care ratings are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its poor grade, we were not shocked to find that this nursing home provided substantially fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well in this area. In fact, we found that just 41.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
