The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home.

The final area we rated was nursing, in which this nursing home received a grade of B. This actually ended up being this facility's worst category. A nursing home is doing something right when their lowest grade still rates higher than most other nursing homes.

Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients more often.
