Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. In forming our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This nursing home is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. In fact, it provided about 50% more care per resident from both of these care providers than the average facility provided. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A. There are a variety of criteria included in this category. Many of the criteria reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 5.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the country when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Turning to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for that category. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. 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.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a B. Believe it or not, this ended up being this nursing home's worst area. A facility is doing something right when their worst score still outperforms most facilities. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
