To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Additionally, this nursing home also was awarded favorable long-term care scores this year. Indeed, we gave them one of our stronger scores in that area, with a score of B+. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 96.6805 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final category we scored is nursing, proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. This was one of the few weak links of an otherwise strong profile. Our nursing score analyzes several components, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
