To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this place an A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. There are a host of factors included in this category. Many of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Our last category is long-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of C in this area. Our long-term care ratings are important for prospective residents requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility provided the vaccine to just 71.16104 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
