One of the reasons this turned out to be a great facility is that it received a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave this facility an impressive grade of A. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Adding to this nursing home's impressive resume, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health.
