An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
To complement its high-end achievements in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a score of A- for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.419975 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
