In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This facility excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is an excellent sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country with 65.2 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.
