This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care. For this reason, we awarded it a score of A- for that category, which happens to be one of our highest grades.

Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Moving on our final category of inspections, this facility received an F here. This grade was very detrimental to this facility's overall score. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection grade. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines of more than $100,000. This often means that a facility's bad performance spanned several years.
