Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing scores are primarily tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

Moving on to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
