As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of severe deficiencies flagged.

We also gave this nursing home a respectable score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Our short-term care grade is often employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation.

These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home.
