Even though this isn't as high as some of its other grades, it is still not a major area of concern. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation.

The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 41.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
