Long-term Care Quality
Even though we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we gave it an excellent score in long-term care, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. This bailed out its overall profile to a degree. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.16342 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
We gave this facility a middle of the road grade of C for inspections. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that this facility avoided the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
