We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received a first-rate grade of A in our short-term care area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
