When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Additionally, this nursing home also was awarded favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
