While its overall grade was awful, we actually awarded the nursing homes in Shelton a B for our short-term care category. This category obviously isn't the source of this place's alarming overall grade. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy.
