Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, this nursing home was given a decent short-term care score of C. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.
