Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are often used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. In addition to performing well in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it also performed well in this metric with 66.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.35216 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable statistic. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.96 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The last category we graded was nursing, which ended up being a low point for this facility. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. The nursing score includes a host of data points. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. Quantity of nursing care does not appear to be the source of this facility's poor nursing grade. This place provides 4.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is better than we expected. In calculating our ratings, we apply more weight to hours performed by highly skilled nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this facility did not fare as well in the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility was above the national average in both of these metrics.
