Short-term Care Quality
Our next category is short-term care, in which we gave this facility a grade of B- in that category. Our short-term care grades are arguably most important for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
