To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's impressive category scores came in the category of short-term care. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
