We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with an A. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not 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.

This is a low total compared to most facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident more often.

This facility's least impressive area was short-term care, which is the last area we scored. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either.
