Historical

We also awarded this facility a solid score in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 33 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
