The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as minimizing major falls. This place performed admirably in this subcategory. Avoiding serious falls is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

The next category we graded is short-term care. For that category, we awarded this facility a C. In forming our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
