Switching gears to our fourth category, this nursing home was given a strong short-term care rating. In fact, we gave it a B+ in this area, completing one of our better profiles. In computing these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.
