Short-term Care Quality
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received even higher grades in our short-term care rating. It earned one of our best scores in that area with A. Short-term care grades are often employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Adding to its impressive grades, we awarded this facility an B+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's government inspections. Facilities that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.
