Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we gave them one of our higher scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B. In our short-term care category, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was respectable in this area with 47.2 percent of its residents returning home.
