An additional strong feature for this facility is that it was awarded a very positive short-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category score. In that category, we gave this facility a B.

Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a resident more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is long-term care, in which this facility received a B. This facility turned out to be relatively strong across the board. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
