Short-term Care Quality
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility received high marks in the area of short-term care as well. It received our highest score in that category with an A+. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
This facility also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This score is based on the facility's inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the biggest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
