Nursing homes that excel in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.

This is well below average. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this place also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores.

Moving on to our final area, we gave this facility a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This was the facility's weakest category rating. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. 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 number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home did not fare well here either.
