Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care score was better than its overall score. In fact, we gave it a B for its long-term care grade. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.19355 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
It should also be noted that this facility's inspection grade was strong as well. We gave it a B for inspections, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
