In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also received an elite short-term care grade. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A. In our short-term care rating, we try to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Turning to another one of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections proved to be one of its best categories. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B+. Inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
