Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
The last area we graded is nursing. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
