Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Short-term care scores are vital for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
