While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable percentage. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.71 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
