Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
The final area we scored was nursing. We gave this nursing home a D for our nursing category, making this the nursing home's least impressive area. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
