On top of receiving a strong overall rating, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. We gave it an A+ for this area, which is one of our highest grades. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it was given a very impressive long-term care score. Indeed, long-term care turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.11504 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
