Short-term Care Quality
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received even higher grades for short-term care. It received one of our highest grades in that area with A. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients 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. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place.

The next category we scored is long-term care, which ended up being this facility's worst category. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is clearly somewhat disappointing. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
