Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy.

Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
