Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it a B in that area, which happens to be one of our better. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
