In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care rating, where it earned an A. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
