It should also be noted that this nursing home's inspection grade outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for its inspections rating, which is a very solid score. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without all of the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being difficult to fully grade it in terms of this category.

Does this page answer your questions about Lawrence Hall Health & Rehabilitation?
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. We assessed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care, is this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is more often than not a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Considering its weak grade in this area, we were not surprised to find this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
