Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next best category is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this area. Short-term care scores are important for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
