Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility earned an impressive grade of A in our long-term care category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 83.03887 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
