Our short-term care grades are arguably more critical for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies.

We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
