In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home fared even better in our inspections category which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspections.

You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home performed well in our long-term care category. As a result, we gave it a grade of A- for that category, which turns out to be one of our higher scores. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
