In forming these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 44.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is long-term care, which ended up being a low point for this facility. We gave this nursing home a D in our long-term care category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.39 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric wasn't bad since it had more complex patients.
