In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home fared well in our long-term care category. We awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.73418 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility an A-.

While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is short-term care, in which this facility received a B-. While this is its weakest category rating, this is still not a poor grade. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses.

The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility.
