In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 84.69657 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

For places with poor inspection ratings, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines of more than $100,000. This usually suggests that a poor track record has been an issue for more than one year.
