Long-term Care Quality
This facility received a strong overall score as discussed above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent long-term care grade. We gave them an A- in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. In crafting these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home.
