Although this wasn't as dominant as many of its other grades, it is still a fine grade. With our short-term care score, we attempt to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.
