We also would like to note the fact that this facility was given an impressive score of A- in our short-term care area. Our short-term care scores are meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The next category we rated was nursing, where this facility received a C. This is this facility's worst area. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. There are many factors included in this grade. Most of these factors reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
