Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last category we assessed is inspections. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
