On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

The next highest area we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are often employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
The next area we rated was nursing, which ended up being this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. Naturally, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
