The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. The nursing grade assesses a handful of factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last category we scored. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it offers fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
