Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of B+. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The last category we graded is this facility's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- for nursing. The nursing grade consists of a handful of factors, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
