Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses.

Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we graded was nursing. This facility received a favorable nursing rating in our assessment, with a C. While this is not nearly as dominant as several of its other scores, this remains a decent score for that category. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a resident more often.
