Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a strong short-term care grade. In fact, this proved to be its best category. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most critical for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
