Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is short-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable short-term care grade, with a grade of B+ in this area. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more critical for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home was given a high-end long-term care score. This nursing home didn't end up having any weak spots. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 84.02778 percent of its patients. This is somewhat less than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
