Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
