The last category we rated was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor score. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. With its abysmal rating in this area, we were not shocked to learn that this nursing home offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
