In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facilities that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed.

Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated just 90.09901 percent of its residents for pneumonia.
