The last category we scored was short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
