Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more important for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we gave this nursing home an B+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
