This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. The nursing grade features a host of factors. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was short-term care. We awarded it a C in that area. This is a fair grade in this category. Short-term care grades are generally employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
