One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This facility boasts a really impressive 8.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we were able to find. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the country when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these datapoints as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
Another strong feature for this facility is that it received a very positive short-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Our short-term care grade is generally used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home provides more services with registered nurses and physical therapists than most facilities we looked at. This is certainly a great sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. It performed respectably in this area with 45.5 percent of its residents returning home.
Adding to its strong resume, this facility earned a grade of B for its inspections rating. This is a well above average score in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Surprisingly, this facility was hit with a category L deficiency, which is unexpected given its inspection rating. This category of deficiency means inspectors uncovered a widespread deficiency putting patient health or safety in immediate danger. Even a single deficiency in this category is concerning. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a B- in the area. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. Finally, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
