This facility earned a short-term care score which is better than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home a B+ in this area. This helped its overall profile quite a bit. Our short-term care scores are likely most meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+.

Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
