Long-term Care Quality
This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we wanted to point out its excellent long-term care score. We awarded them a grade of A in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In addition, this facility earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
