On top of earning a great overall score, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent government inspection reports. We gave it a grade of A+ for this category, which is one of our highest grades. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home fared well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- for that category, which turns out to be one of our most elite grades. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
