We also found that this nursing home excelled in long-term care. We gave them a grade of A+ in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This facility has also received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
