While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home.

Most of the factors are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls.

This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
