Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
