Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a strong facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A+. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a fair assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. This nursing home is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. It offered approximately one and a half times as many registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. This is what we look for when assessing a facility in this category. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any facility in the country in this area with 63.7 percent of its residents returning home.
This facility has also received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was elite in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Very few facilities received a better grade in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last category we rated was nursing, where this nursing home was given an A. This completed a very strong profile. Not many nursing homes received an A- or better in every single category. The nursing grade weighs many factors. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 5.7 hours of nursing care per resident daily, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
