Historical

This nursing home's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. It received an F for this area. In spite of multiple acceptable grades in other areas, this grade is still alarming so we wanted to make a note of it. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 94.28571 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.75 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
