This facility also was given a very strong short-term care score. Indeed, this is its third strongest category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Wrapping up this nursing home's impressive profile, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. With this grade, the facility completes its straight A report card. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
