Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This facility excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is an excellent sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility with 73 percent of its patients returning home.
This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. The nursing category is based on several components, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This place provided 8.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is among the more impressive totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by these statistics. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in Missouri in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. It received one of our highest grades in that area with an impressive grade of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In our final category, this nursing home was given another A+ for its long-term care score. This completed a stellar report card of all A+'s. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. It doesn't look like this facility provided vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep 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 number.
