In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The next area we assessed is nursing, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B-. While this turned out to be its weakest category score, this is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. The nursing rating analyzes many subcategories, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a patient even once per day.
