This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, this facility did not fare well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its poor grade in this area, we were not shocked to find that this facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either.
