Short-term Care Quality
The last area we scored was short-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. Short-term care ratings are important for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility.
