Places that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Short-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its high-end short-term care score. It received one of our best scores in that category, with a score of A-. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

The last category we graded was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in that category. This is not a bad grade in this area. For residents seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category.
