This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home received a very poor grade in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
