Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest area was its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
