In this process, we assess a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing score includes quite a few datapoints, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.
