We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded a strong score of A in our short-term care category. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Maryland in this area with 63.4 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, less than half of their short-stay patients are able to return home.

Moving on our next category, this nursing home received a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, it received a grade of A- in that area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The last category we assessed is nursing. We awarded this facility a decent grade in this area, with a C. While this was not as dominant as a few of its other grades, it is still nothing to be ashamed of. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the number of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we look at quality-based statistics, such as the percentage of residents who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. These data points are decent measures of the quality of nursing care.
