Long-term Care Quality
Although we gave this nursing home an awful overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our long-term care rating. With our long-term care category, we look at the volume of care offered by a nursing home, along with a handful of quality datapoints. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
As it turns out, its inspection reports were not the source of this facility's rock bottom overall grade. In fact, it received a grade of C in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Honestly, this was about what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home.
