Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an A+ in short-term care. This is as good as it gets in this category. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any facility with 69.1 percent of its residents returning home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 5.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This was one of the highest figures we found. In addition, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the state in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Finally, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
