We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home has had near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The last area we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of A-. This topped off a first-rate report card. Not many facilities earned an A- or better in all four categories. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
