In addition to receiving a strong overall rating, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a score of A+ for its long-term care grade. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
