Short-term Care Quality

In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Moving on to the fourth category, we awarded this facility a grade of D for our nursing category. This is the facility's least impressive category rating. The nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
