Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the last area, this nursing home received a respectable long-term care rating. While this was not nearly as strong as several of its other grades, this is still a middle of the pack score.

After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 88.09524 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points less than average. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
