One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is as good as it gets in this critical area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Switching gears to the last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in nursing. This is the nursing home's worst category score. However, you shouldn't focus exclusively a single weak area. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings.
