One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. Our nursing score considers numerous subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides an incredible 8.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses.

Our short-term care grades are important for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy.

This is a very favorable sign. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home.
