Even though this wasn't as strong as a few of its other grades, it is still not a terrible score. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation.

Unfortunately, we were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
