Racking up another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without having complete deficiency data, it is challenging to grade this facility in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is this facility's poorest category. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- in long-term care. In the category of long-term care, we weigh the amount of services provided by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Finally, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
