In addition, this facility also earned excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in that area, with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for this category. This completed truly elite report card. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
