The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an A+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received a strong grade in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in that category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 75.1462 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. While it had 1.89 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most nursing homes due to it having some more complicated patients.
