Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. The nursing score is based on quite a few components, however, the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area was short-term care, which is the last area we assessed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. Our short-term care grades are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, it looks like it offers less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.3 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
