This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we want to note its excellent short-term care score. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the final area, this nursing home really did not perform very well. Due to a poor grade of F in this area, this is clearly this facility's poorest category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 88.52459 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
