Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In determining these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This nursing home excelled at the highest level in two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the nation in this area with 64.9 percent of its patients returning home.
This nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A+. This is one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. There are many datapoints within this area. Many of the subcategories relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 6.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This was one of the better figures we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the country in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last category, this nursing home was given an extremely favorable long-term care score. We awarded it a B+ in that area, topping off one of our more impressive profiles. In a long-term care setting, the facility's 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 patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
