You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this facility a D in this category. Sadly, this category hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we discovered that this place offers less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
