Short-term Care Quality
While we didn't give this nursing home a favorable overall score, we actually gave it a strong score in the category of short-term care, where it earned a B. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Lastly, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.
