Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received favorable marks in the area of long-term care this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. This ended up being the facility's best grade and helped its profile quite a bit.

Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.55556 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. This facility was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a substantially better hospitalization rate than the majority of nursing homes.
This facility actually earned a solid inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B-. We were surprised this nursing home earned multiple category grades of this caliber. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
