This exemplary facility also fared very well in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
