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 score. Short-term care turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an impressive grade of A-. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most important for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed at a high level in the category of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an B+. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
