Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Remarkably, this place provides about 1.5 times as many hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we assessed. This is typically an encouraging sign. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Missouri in this area with 76 percent of its residents returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
This first-rate facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing score is based on several subcategories, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provides an incredible 8.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily. 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 trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these datapoints as good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed is long-term care. We awarded it another elite score of A+ in this category. This wrapped up a flawless profile of A+'s. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
