In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Inspection grades are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies.

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. The nursing score is based on a handful of components, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

The next area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded it a C in that category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return 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.
