Short-term Care Quality
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received an excellent short-term care score. We gave it an A in that category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was elite in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
