Long-term Care Quality
This facility received an elite long-term care score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A in this category, which really bumped up its overall score. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This facility also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
