Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is as good as it gets in this area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also would like to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded a superb score of A in our short-term care area. Our short-term care scores are presumably most meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
