In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report.

In computing our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is more often than not a reliable measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a very poor grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated only 79.765396 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
