The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
