Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A for short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes 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 looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
This nursing home also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent government inspections. We awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our top scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
