Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility received an A+ for short-term care. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This place excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical nursing home. This is usually a great sign. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Oklahoma in this area with 70.5 percent of its residents returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+. There are several factors within this grade. Most of the subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place provided 9.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is among the better figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by both of these statistics. On top of providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The third category we looked at was long-term care. This facility performed well in our long-term care rating as well. We gave them an impressive score of A+ in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it received an A. This rounded out a straight A report card for this nursing home. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
