To pair with a strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspection category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home also was awarded a very impressive short-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third strongest category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Short-term care scores are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
The next category we analyzed is nursing. This nursing home was awarded an impressive nursing score this year, with a grade of B-. Although this is not nearly as strong as a few of its other category grades, this is still a respectable score for that category. Our nursing rating includes several factors, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
