One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. With 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility surpassed the majority of facilities.

With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is usually a fairly reliable indicator of quality nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area. Our short-term care grades are likely more critical for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
