We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.4 hours per patient daily. This is more nursing care than nearly any other facility offers. Lastly, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it fared as well as any facility the country when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we gave this nursing home an A- for inspections. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Only a select group of facilities received a better grade in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of offering very favorable levels of nursing care and other staffing, this facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This statistic is also much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.65 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Historical

In the final area, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for its short-term care grade. This completed a very strong report card. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This place performed better than most facilities in this area with 52.4 percent of its residents returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
