Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. There are numerous subcategories within this category. Most of these criteria are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Missouri in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a resident even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is long-term care, where this facility was given a B-. While this ended up being its worst category grade, this is still not the end of the world. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
