Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies.

We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists.

However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home.

The fourth area we analyzed is nursing, where this nursing home was given an A-. This wrapped up a very strong report card. Not many nursing homes received an A- or better in every single category.

This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care.
