Does this page answer your questions about Garnet Hill Rehabilitation and Skilled Care?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. When determining our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was short-term care, proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this area. This was one of just a few dings of a very solid profile. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. We found that this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
