Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is more often than not a reliable assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
