The next area we scored is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a rock bottom score in this area as well. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
