We also want to note the fact that this facility was given an impressive grade of A- in our long-term care area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home was given an extremely favorable short-term care rating. We awarded it a B+ in that category, topping off one of our more impressive report cards. Short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
