Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
