Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility performed remarkably in our short-term care rating. We gave them a dominant score of A+ in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
