To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for our short-term care grade. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
