One of the reasons this ended up being a strong nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality

This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. This nursing home's vaccination records lagged a bit behind a few of the other datapoints in this category, such as its nursing hours data. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 69.863014 percent of its residents. We would love to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Fortunately, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.
