Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
To add to its impressive achievements in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for our long-term care rating. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Overall this looks like a good option for long-term care.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. The nursing score includes a host of subcategories. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth area, this facility also performed admirably in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that area. This rounded out a very strong profile. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
