In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
This facility has earned near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
