Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.15254 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
In the final category, this nursing home also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade, with a B+. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
