Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of C in this category is by no means a bad score. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's worst category is short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It appears that this facility was subpar in several staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
