This facility also fared very well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few facilities received a better grade in this category. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community.

This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
