In computing these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists.

Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the final area, this facility also performed well in our long-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ in that area. This completed a very strong report card. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
