This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last category we looked at. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category. Even with a few solid scores in other categories, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we would like to to make a note of it. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. As you might expect, we learned that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
