In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
This nursing home's worst area was nursing, which is the final category we scored. We gave it an abysmal F for this category. Despite a few decent scores in other categories, this grade is still disappointing so we wanted to draw your attention to it.

This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings.
