The next category we graded is short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 34.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Historical

The final category we looked at is long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is not a bad grade in this area. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 70.99236 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points less than what we expected. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. With 1.88 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this place is also slightly below the national average.
