Registered Staff Hours
We also want to point out that this facility excelled in our nursing category. We awarded them an A+ in this area. Our nursing rating is based on several factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to note the fact that this facility received a first-rate score of A in our short-term care area. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
