We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
The final category we graded is nursing. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in this area, with a B-. While this isn't as high as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is still a middle of the pack score. The nursing score includes quite a few data points, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at.
