We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

In that area, we gave this facility a score of A. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing.

We found it provides at least one and a half times as many hours with physical therapists as most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility.
