One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't 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.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was strong in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This facility was satisfactory in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered a reasonable level of care from both physical therapists and registered nurses. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it was above average in this area with 55.8 percent of its residents returning home.
The next category we assessed is nursing. This nursing home was given a strong nursing rating in our assessment, with a B. Although this is not nearly as strong as a few of its other scores, this remains one of the better scores for this category. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 4.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the highest totals we found. Lastly, we also looked at nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these data points as good indicators of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
