Compounding its strong assessments in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A for our short-term care rating.

Moving on to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B. This actually proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. A facility could be doing a lot worse when their poorest score still outperforms most nursing homes. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.
