This facility's long-term care score outpaced its overall score. We awarded it a grade of B+ for its long-term care grade. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 75.6654 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
