We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 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 place performed well in this area.

Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.
