The purpose is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The last category we looked at was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. However, we would not assess this nursing home solely on a single bad category, since it earned a few high-end grades in other areas.

This number is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings.
