Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home did not fare very well here either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In our short-term care rating, we try to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 2.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
