To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to the next category, this facility was awarded a very strong long-term care rating. We awarded it an A- in that category, giving this facility straight A's. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.783936 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.
