These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Moving on to our last category, this facility was given an acceptable nursing grade of C. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Lastly, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory.
