Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. The nursing score includes many factors, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This place provided 9.7 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is among the higher totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. On top of offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
This facility has also received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning our third area, this exemplary facility also performed remarkably in the area of short-term care. In this area, it received a A+. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Short-term care ratings are important for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical nursing home. This is an encouraging sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 69.9 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.
Long-term Care Quality
In our final category, this facility received another A+ for its long-term care rating, wrapping up an incredible profile of straight A+'s in all four categories. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
