Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great facility is that it earned a very impressive short-term care grade. This proved to be its best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
