In addition to being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really excelled in our short-term care category, where it earned an A. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home with 73.1 percent of its patients returning home.
This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. We gave it an A- for that category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
