Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our stronger scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B+.

The goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

The next category we assessed is long-term care. This facility was given a better than average nursing score this year, with a grade of B.

When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.14893 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
