This nursing home's third highest area turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In computing these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
