Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety.

We also would like to note the fact that this nursing home received a top-shelf grade of A- in our long-term care category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Turning to our last area, this nursing home was given an acceptable short-term care score. Even though this was not as good as many of its other category grades, this is truly a middle of the pack score. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 38.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
