To go along with its strong overall performance, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's impressive category grades came in the area of long-term care. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a score of B. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality 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 against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.69027 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
