The next best area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home.
