Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an A+ in short-term care. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 7.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
This nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information 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 serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Only a select few facilities received an A- or better in each of our categories.
