Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first-rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled at short-term care, where it received an elite grade of A+. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
