Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients.

One of this nursing home's more favorable category scores was in the area of short-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility.
