We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
We also would like to emphasize the fact that this facility received a first-rate score of A in our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are commonly used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more than 50% more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in this area with 66 percent of its residents returning home.
