Short-term Care Quality
The third best area we gave this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Short-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last category we graded was nursing, which is this nursing home's weakest area. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is clearly a bit of a disappointment. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. While this nursing home's nursing hours are below average, it actually surprised us in a few of the qualitative areas in this category. In particular, we were pleased to see that its residents appear to be sustaining fewer pressure ulcers than most nursing homes.
