In that area, we awarded this facility an A. In crafting these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Turning to inspections, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's government inspections. We awarded it an A- for that category.

Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe.
