Our short-term care grade is often used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category.
