Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Nursing grades are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D for our short-term care category, rendering this the nursing home's weakest area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
