One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider 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.
Long-term Care Quality
To add to its first-rate assessments in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A- for our long-term care rating. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. It goes without saying that we were impressed with our findings here in this area.
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. In computing our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this nursing home also performed admirably in the short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for this category. This finalized a first-rate profile. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
