Short-term Care Quality
On top of faring well in its overall grade, this nursing home received even higher grades in the category of short-term care. It received one of our best scores in that category with a score of A. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return 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.
This facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its inspections. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
