Long-term Care Quality
Turning our next area, we awarded this facility a score of A for our long-term care rating. This is a very strong rating. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. This actually proved to be this facility's weakest area. This is nevertheless not a bad grade. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
