In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is frequently a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either.
