Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility one of our higher grades in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. This is far better than its overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is more often than not a fair measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This facility's second best category is inspections. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
