To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
