One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category.

This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
