Short-term Care Quality
Turning our third category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. This is a dominant grade. Short-term care scores are critical for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
