This facility received its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category, which is a decent score. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
The last area we looked at was nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is certainly very concerning. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
