Long-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our long-term care rating. We gave them an A+ in this area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This facility has also received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
