Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.32402 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade.

Short-term Care Quality

While this isn't as good as some of its other grades, this is nevertheless a respectable score for that category. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It does not look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
