Grade: B-minus

Turning to the fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a decent long-term care grade. Even though this is not nearly as good as many of its other scores, this is truly not the end of the world. Our long-term care scores are more critical for people requiring more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations.
