We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place.

This nursing home truly excelled in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Only a select group of facilities performed more favorably in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists.
