In addition to being a first-rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an elite grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety.
