Short-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to find that this nursing home received a reasonably solid short-term care grade this year. We gave it a C in that area. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
