The third category we assessed was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this category. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.11894 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This ended up pulling down this nursing home's overall score quite a bit. When a place has this poor of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This typically means that a nursing home's poor track record spanned multiple years.
