When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. 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 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Finally, we also found that this nursing home has received favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a B in this area. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
