This grade is typically a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. With a grade in this range for this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was below average in multiple staffing areas we assess. It supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes.
