One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is short-term care, was this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. This is one of the couple of dings on a very solid profile. Our short-term care grade is often used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
