In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on.

Despite several solid grades in other categories, this grade is nevertheless concerning so we wanted to point it out. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This place offered a meager 2.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day. On top of its subpar nursing hour totals, this place also earned poor marks in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We found that a higher percentage of this nursing home's patients experienced falls leading to major injury. We believe that many falls could likely be avoided with better nursing care. This metric contributed to this place receiving a terrible nursing rating.
