Long-term Care Quality
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in long-term care. In fact, we gave it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We were also pleasantly surprised to award this facility a relatively favorable health inspection score as well. We gave it a B- in this category, which easily topped its overall grade. Our inspection scores are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
