Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care rating. In fact, short-term care is its best category. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. In calculating these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
