This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category is short-term care, which is the final category we looked at. We gave it an F for this area. Despite a few solid grades in other areas, this grade is still disappointing so we felt obligated to make a note of it. With our short-term care score, we try to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
