Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This nursing home is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it offered roughly 1.5 times as many registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any facility in the nation in this area with 69.8 percent of its patients returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this statistic.
This facility also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the nursing home's government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
