We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

The last area we analyzed is long-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 93.75 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations.
