In addition to faring well overall, this facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility was given dominant marks in the area of short-term care. Consequently, it was given one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This nursing home is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. The facility supplied roughly one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation with 74.3 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.
Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. The nursing grade weighs several subcategories, but the main one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided 5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This was one of the highest totals we found. In addition, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these statistics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was this nursing home's worst category. However, even its weakest link would be a strength for most facilities. We awarded it a favorable grade of B in our long-term care category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
