The last area we assessed was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With its abysmal score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who 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 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
