One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. It doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its top-shelf achievements in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. This facility is off the charts in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, this is this facility's third strongest category score. In that category, this facility received a score of A. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Remarkably, this facility provides approximately 50% more hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we assessed. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Idaho in this area with 57.3 percent of its residents returning home.
In the last category, this facility also was awarded an impressive nursing grade, with a grade of B+. This topped off an elite report card. In computing our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provides an incredible 5.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the nation in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these areas as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care being provided.
