This nursing home's next most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this also impacted quality of care.
