Turning to the next category, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area.

This nursing home vaccinated 96.42857 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Grade: B

The next area we looked at is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our higher scores in this area, with a grade of B. This nursing home ended up being relatively strong across the board. Short-term care grades are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
