On top of earning a strong overall grade, this facility also earned an elite short-term care grade. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A-. Short-term care grades are meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-.
