Short-term Care Quality
This facility surprisingly received a good score in the category of short-term care. We gave it a B for that category, which is a solid score. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in the country in this area with 59.8 percent of its residents returning home.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. According to CMS records, this place averaged 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Keep in mind that when we compute our nursing grades, we add more weight to hours performed by nurses with a higher level of training. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
