Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the category of short-term care, where it earned a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. If it was not for this grade, this facility's overall grade would have been much worse. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
We also wanted to emphasize this place's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of B+ in this area. Inspection scores are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We were not able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without having access to complete deficiency related data, it is challenging to fully grade it in this category.
