To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This is far better than its overall rating. Our inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
