Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this facility a grade of C for its short-term care rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
