Grade: B-minus

The final category we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B-. This ended up being this nursing home's worst category. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
