It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

In addition, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of B.

Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.
