Short-term Care Quality
In addition to performing well overall, this facility received high marks in our short-term care rating as well. As a result, it received our highest score in that category with an A+. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation with 62.9 percent of its residents returning home.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
