Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its higher grades. The facility received a C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
