This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either.

This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was short-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
