Short-term Care Quality
In addition to earning a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given an impressive score of A in our long-term care category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
