An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A. Our nursing grade analyzes several datapoints, but the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week.

On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home.
