Long-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.618324 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent inspection reports. We awarded it an A- for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
