Grade: A

Contributing to its top-shelf profile, this facility also was awarded a dominant long-term care grade, with a score of A.

This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.9798 percent of its residents, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the last category, this facility also performed well in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for this area. This topped off a first-rate profile. Our short-term care grades are arguably more meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
