Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
To pair with its strong overall performance, we awarded this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care score. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average facility. This is typically an encouraging sign. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. This place was above average in this area with 50.7 percent of its patients able to return home.
In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This was one of the higher figures we found. Furthermore, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the country in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This actually was this facility's worst area. Long-term care grades are often used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to find this facility's vaccination rates. Finally, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
