Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Although this wasn't on par with some of its other scores, it is still a perfectly acceptable grade. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 94.50549 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital.
