One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.
