One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L.

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home performed well in our short-term care rating. We gave them a dominant score of A+ in this area. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
