On top of receiving a great overall score, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. This nursing home is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. The facility provided approximately one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country in this area with 68.3 percent of its patients returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received an A+ for its long-term care grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Switching gears to the next category, this facility was given a high-end nursing score. In fact, we gave it an A in this category, giving this facility straight A's. The nursing grade weighs numerous data points. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 8.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This was one of the higher figures we found. Furthermore, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the state in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.
