Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
One of the reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is just about as good as it gets in this critical area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Another reason we assessed this facility so highly is that it was given an A+ short-term care grade. This is flat out as dominant as it gets in this area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Remarkably, this facility provides approximately one and a half times as many hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most facilities we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 73.7 percent of its patients returning home.

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. In computing our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides an incredible 6 hours of nursing care per resident daily. 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 nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in Virginia in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these areas as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
The fourth category we rated was long-term care. We gave it another great grade of A+ in this area. This finalized a perfect profile of all A+'s. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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 figure.
