Short-term Care Quality
Another issue is the F this nursing home was given in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility did not perform very well. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is its worst grade. Our nursing rating considers a host of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
