This facility fared well in our long-term care category, with a grade of A- in this category. This really helped its overall score quite a bit. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 96.58119 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a B.

Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
