One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Switching gears to the last category, this facility was awarded an excellent long-term care grade. We awarded it a B+ in this area, finishing off one of our finer report cards. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health.

This facility vaccinated 96.06299 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
