This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in that area, which happens to be one of our better. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.73404 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. The last datapoint we assessed is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Although it had 2.44 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was middle of the road since it had more complex patients.
