Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also performed well in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A+. Very few nursing homes fared as well in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to direct your attention to the fact that this nursing home performed remarkably in our short-term care rating. We gave them an impressive score of A+ in this category. With our short-term care grade, we strive to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This facility is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. It supplied approximately 50% more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it fared as well as just about any facility with 72.4 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was given a dominant score of A in our long-term care category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Turning to our final category, this nursing home received an excellent nursing score. While this isn't nearly as strong as a few of its other scores, this is still one of the more impressive grades a facility can receive. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provided 5.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by these statistics. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
