Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is not one of our better scores. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
The final area we looked at is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is clearly a significant disappointment. We assessed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
