This nursing home vaccinated 88.321884 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a very solid grade of B. In calculating our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility 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. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
