This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection ratings are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L.

Our short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The final category we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility a D for our nursing category, rendering this its least impressive area. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average.
