We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility was given a strong score of A in our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy.

On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.
