One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection 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 did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received an A+ long-term care grade, rendering it one of the few facilities to receive more than one A+ category scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. This nursing home was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.3 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a significantly lower hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.
