On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home 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. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Our nursing grade is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. Short-term care grades are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
