Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
In addition, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with a score of A.
