This is an impressive figure which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, we also looked at nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home received a respectable short-term care score. Even though this was not nearly as dominant as some of its other scores, this is truly not a major area of concern. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 33.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
