This nursing home's short-term care grade ended up being one of its better grades. The facility was given a B- in this category. Short-term care scores are critical for people seeking rehabilitation.

It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes.

In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations.

With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
