This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially would like to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. 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.

In doing so, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. It fared better than most facilities in this metric with 51.8 percent of its residents returning home.
This nursing home's least impressive area was nursing, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we gave this facility a D. When computing our nursing grades, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. With a meager 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Although this nursing home's nursing hours were below average, it surprised us in a few of the qualitative data points in this category. In particular, we were pleased to find that its residents appear to be experiencing fewer pressure ulcers than the national average.
