This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C for short-term care. Short-term care grades are commonly used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 14.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
