The third area we assessed is short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Moving on to our fourth area, this facility received a respectable long-term care grade of C. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable figure. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
