Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for its short-term care rating. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
