Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not an impressive grade. Our short-term care grades are arguably most critical for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
The last category we scored is nursing, which ended up being this facility's worst area. We gave it an F for this category, which is clearly very disappointing. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
