This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is definitely a good sign for the quality of care at this nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category scores came in the area of long-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Long-term care scores are essential for prospective residents needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. We would need to do a bit more research into this place before expressing a stronger opinion on this category as it looks like we were missing a few datapoints for long-term care.
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing category analyzes many subcategories, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed a few nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these statistics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a resident even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth category, we awarded this nursing home a D for short-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
