In this process, we analyze the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its poor grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
