Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category 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.
This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a C in this area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 16.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was long-term care. We gave this facility a D in the area of long-term care, leaving this as the facility's worst grade. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
