We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the area of short-term care, where it received a B-. Short-term care ratings are important for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not a score to write home about. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 91.43646 percent of its patients, which is slightly less than we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
The last area we looked at is nursing, where this facility received a poor score in this area as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings.
