This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a 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 nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave them a grade of B in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 92.71457 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
