Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. Surprisingly, this place was hit with a category J through K deficiency, which are some of the worst deficiencies.

With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its score in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
