The next area we assessed was short-term care. Adding to its dominant resume, this facility also excelled in this category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of of A for that category. In our short-term care category, we seek to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy.

However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.
