Even though this wasn't as good as a few of its other scores, this remains a decent score in this category. In our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
