This means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its score in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
