Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more favorable grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
