This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. There are numerous factors within this category. Most of these criteria reflect staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is short-term care. We gave this facility a D in the area of short-term care, making this the nursing home's least impressive category grade. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
