Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home earned an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. In our short-term care score, we strive to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we gave this nursing home an A- for inspections. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home averages 0.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place.
