Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has received respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care, ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Our short-term care scores are critical for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this facility offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
