Historical

The last area we graded is long-term care. We gave this facility a decent grade in that area, with a B-. Although this isn't as strong as several of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. Our long-term care grades are more important for those requiring more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, we were not able to find this place's vaccination data. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
