Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility an A for our short-term care score. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 7.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.
