Short-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other strengths is its dominant short-term care score. It received one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a score of A-. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The next category we looked at was nursing, where this facility was awarded a C. Although this wound up being its weakest category grade, this is still not a terrible score. Nursing ratings are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving residents more frequently.
