In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that category with an A. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.

In our short-term care score, we strive to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The final area we assessed was nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this facility a D in that area. Our nursing score considers a variety of factors. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an alarmingly low total.
