Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
On top of being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ government inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a score of A+ for its short-term care grade. In crafting these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This facility is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients. The facility provided about one and a half times as much care per resident from both of these groups of skilled professionals than a typical nursing home provided. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Delaware in this area with 68.4 percent of its residents returning home.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This facility boasts a really impressive 4.7 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in that category, with a grade of B-. Even though this is not as favorable as many of its other grades, it is still not a bad grade. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
