Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score. Indeed, we gave them a grade of B in this area, which is one of our better. Our short-term care grades are probably most critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
