Long-term Care Quality
Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our more favorable grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was 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.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a grade of B. This nursing home ended up being very solid in each category we looked at. Our short-term care scores are presumably more critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
