We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses are with patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated was short-term care. It received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor grade. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
