Inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category turned out to be its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of B-. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
