To pair with its favorable overall performance, we gave this place an A for the area of inspections. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this facility. Without having all of the deficiency data, it is a challenge to fully assess it in this category.
Among its many impressive grades, this facility earned an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in that area. Nursing scores are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a patient at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our next area, this facility also earned a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. In forming our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home rather than remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category. In determining our long-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's personal care services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Finally, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
