Our long-term care grades are important for prospective residents needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 98.88268 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to the final category of inspections, this was not one of this nursing home's better grades. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded this facility a C in this category. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This facility had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
