Historical

The next area we assessed was long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. Long-term care ratings are critical for residents requiring personal care. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 70.51282 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.74 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes due to it having more complex patients.

This means inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to place patient safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Overall, this inspection definitely could have been much worse.
