Short-term Care Quality
We wanted to point out that this facility's short-term care grade outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a B+ for short-term care. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. It received an abysmal F for this category. Even with some decent grades in other categories, this score is still of a concern so we felt obligated to make a note of it. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
