Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the fourth area, this facility also performed admirably in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in that category. This completed a very impressive report card. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is more often than not a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services.
