Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
This nursing home's worst area was nursing, which is the final category we looked at. It received an abysmal F in this category. In spite of some solid scores in other areas, this grade is still concerning so we wanted to point it out. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores.
