With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more often.

Grade: A-minus

The final category we scored is short-term care, where this facility was given an A-. This completed a first-rate report card. Very few facilities received an A- or better in all four categories.

This score is generally a reliable assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
