In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 74.5223 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. Short-term care grades are generally employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
