Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, this facility didn't fare very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's weakest area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is more often than not a meaningful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Given its abysmal score in this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this place offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home 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.
