In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ long-term care grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. We assessed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy.

The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home.
