Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home received an impressive grade of A in our long-term care category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 77.674416 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was short-term care. This facility was awarded a very good nursing grade this year, with a grade of B. Even though this was not quite as strong as many of its other category grades, this is still one of our more impressive grades for that area. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most important for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
