Long-term Care Quality
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received even higher grades in the area of long-term care. It received one of our highest scores in that area with an A-. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 95.28302 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections proved to be one of its best categories. In that area, we awarded this facility an B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
