Our short-term care scores are presumably most important for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing grades are primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day.
