Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also received an elite short-term care grade. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
This facility also excelled in inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. This is one of the few nursing homes with an overall grade in this range which received multiple category grades this high. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
