Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

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

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared with most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final area, we gave this nursing home a D in the area of short-term care. This is the facility's least impressive category grade. Of course, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
