On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this place also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given a high-end score of A- in our short-term care area. Short-term care grades are important for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This was more of a strength for this facility. It performed as well as just about any facility in Oklahoma in this area with 69.6 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents return home.
