This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also was awarded a dominant short-term care grade, with a score of A. Short-term care scores are vital for patients requiring rehabilitation.
