Short-term Care Quality
While we didn't have many positive things to say about this facility's overall grade, it did receive a respectable short-term care grade of B-. This spared its profile to an extent. Our short-term care grade is generally used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area.
