Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
