To pair with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall score. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong long-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded them a grade of B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our better. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
