One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. 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.

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing rating includes quite a few subcategories, but the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Our next category is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in that category. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for patients requiring more traditional services associated with personal care.
