On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received top notch inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so well is that it was given a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care turned out to be its second most favorable category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
