Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a bottom of the barrel score in our short-term care area. It received a lowly F in this category. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most critical for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Turning to the final category, this facility did not perform well here either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. There are many criteria within this grade. Most of these criteria reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
