Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other achievements is its top-shelf long-term care score. We gave them one of our best grades in that area, with a score of A-. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
