Short-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so favorably is that it was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its second most impressive category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the last category we looked at. It received an F for this category. Despite some favorable scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless a bit alarming so we wanted to point it out. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average statistic. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
