Short-term Care Quality
On top of earning a strong overall score, this nursing home performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Short-term care scores are meaningful for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed at a high level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with an A. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies.

Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
