Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

This nursing home had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L.

Long-term Care Quality
Our last category is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a C in this area. Long-term care grades are often used to measure a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
