Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.

Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing rating includes several subcategories, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is short-term care, is this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. This was one of the few dings of a strong profile. In crafting our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
