This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a patient more often.

This facility also performed well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most critical for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses.
