This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to place resident safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Overall, this inspection could have been much worse.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave this facility a C in that area. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 1.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
