Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a solid score in that category, with a grade of C. Although this isn't as high as a few of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless not a terrible score. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
