In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is generally a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its inspection rating. This is a very important category.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last category, this facility really didn't fare well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets.

In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.14991 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
