This nursing home was given a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is long-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in that category. Sadly, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. It doesn't look like this facility provided data regarding vaccinations. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
