In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Our final area is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a B- in this category. Our long-term care grades are crucial for patients needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 93.92971 percent of its residents, which is a very solid datapoint. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
