Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety.

The next area we assessed was short-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more critical for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
