While this nursing home's overall grade was not great, it received a good grade in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is a solid score. This one of its few redeeming features. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Adding to its strong profile, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with an B. Our nursing score weighs numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day.
