Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is short-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B. Believe it or not, this is this nursing home's weakest category. A nursing home is doing something right when their poorest grade still is superior to most other facilities. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.
