Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last category, this facility did not fare very well in this area either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated just 83.269966 percent of its residents for pneumonia.
