On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also performed well in our long-term care category, where it received an A+. Few facilities fared better in this area.

Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Turning to the final area, this nursing home was given an excellent short-term care grade. We gave it a grade of B+ in that category, wrapping up one of our more impressive report cards. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
