Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in our short-term care rating. In fact, we gave it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. This really boosted its profile. Short-term care grades are crucial for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't something to panic about.
