On top of performing well overall, this facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with a grade of A+. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was short-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a B-. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. This is nevertheless not the end of the world. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
