Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having access to deficiency data for this facility, it is a challenge to really assess it in the area of inspections.

The last area we scored was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category, rendering this the facility's weakest category. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
