On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Very few facilities fared as well in this area. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received an A+ for its short-term care score. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
