Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in our long-term care category, where it earned an impressive grade of A. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.92473 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Not many nursing homes performed as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.
