This combination proved to be successful as this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.27 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a significantly better hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.

The final area we assessed was short-term care, in which this facility was given a B. Believe it or not, this was this nursing home's least impressive category. A facility could be doing a lot worse when it's worst grade still outperforms most other facilities. Short-term care grades are often employed to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
