Facilities that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety.

Short-term Care Quality
An additional reason we graded this facility so highly is that it was awarded an A+ short-term care score. This is flat out as strong as it gets in this category. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
