We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a B+. This is a notably better score than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection grades are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.

Short-term Care Quality
The next highest area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care scores are arguably most meaningful for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
