Adding to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also was given a superb short-term care grade, with a score of A. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation.

Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated was long-term care. This facility was given a better than average nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. Even though this wasn't as impressive as some of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of our more favorable grades in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
