Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade in this range in this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this facility was below average in several staffing areas we assess. In fact, it provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The final category we rated was nursing. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal score. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes.
