Long-term Care Quality
An additional strength of this nursing home is its first-rate score in long-term care. We gave them one of our best grades in that category, with a grade of A-. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis.

This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
