Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this proved to be a quality nursing home is it received a very impressive short-term care grade. Short-term care turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. Short-term care grades are generally employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home provided more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the country in this area with 60.4 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.
Adding to its impressive grades, we awarded this facility an B+ for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
