In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. We awarded it an A for that area. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

To complement its first-rate assessments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a score of A for its short-term care score.

Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health.

Even though this was not on par with a few of this nursing home's other grades, it is still an excellent grade. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients.
