This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, we gave this nursing home a D for our short-term care category. This was the facility's weakest category score. Sadly, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile to some degree. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at 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 formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
