We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home received an impressive grade of A for short-term care. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

We discovered that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
In addition, this facility also earned a nearly flawless government inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale.
