Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. We awarded it a B- for this area. There are quite a few criteria included in this grade. Many of these subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to learn that this facility received a decent short-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a C in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
