Short-term Care Quality
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received even higher grades in our short-term care category. In fact, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A-. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
This facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the facility's inspections. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category, which is one of our top grades. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
