The next category we analyzed was short-term care. This nursing home was awarded an impressive short-term care grade, with a grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our rating in this category. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area.
