Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is as good as it gets in this critical area. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Compounding its high-end assessments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care score. Our short-term care ratings are likely more important for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. This facility was awarded a strong long-term care score in our assessment, with a B-. While this is not as strong as several of its other category grades, this is nevertheless a respectable grade in that category. In the area of long-term care, we assess the amount of services offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services.
