The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 62.4 percent of its residents returning home. This is a far better rate than most nursing homes.

Grade: A-minus

In the final area, we gave this facility a grade of A for our nursing score. This rounded out a very impressive report card.
