Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing grades are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
