We also awarded this facility a score of A- for our short-term care score. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This place outperformed the majority of facilities in the country in this area with 55.6 percent of its patients returning home. This is a higher rate than most nursing homes.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. The nursing category includes many components, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place averages 0 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider some quality-focused statistics. We like to look at the percentage of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these datapoints are decent measures of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these problems.
