Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. The last datapoint we assessed is the nursing home's hospitalization rate.

Compounding its high-end profile, this nursing home also was given a superb short-term care score, with a score of A. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. This place outperformed the overwhelming majority of nursing homes in the country with 63.4 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.
