Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The next category we looked at is nursing. This nursing home received a grade of B- for this area. Our nursing score weighs several factors, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
