You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories J through L. This means inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to put patient health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy.

The final category we graded was long-term care, turned out to be this facility's worst category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. This was one of the few dings on a very solid profile. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the vaccine to just 88.63636 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
