Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. This place excelled in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to 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 nursing home in this area with 70.3 percent of its patients returning home.
This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Our nursing grade considers many datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility boasts a really impressive 11 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these areas as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
