This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the senior population.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we graded was this facility's worst category. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would likely be a strength for many facilities. We awarded it a strong grade of B in short-term care. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
