This facility received a good score in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Our last area is long-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this category. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
