Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also fared very well in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Only a select group of facilities fared better in this category. With our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than the typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in this area with 73.2 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. The nursing rating assesses several factors, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the more impressive totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by these figures. In addition to providing high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the state in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care grade. While this is not quite as impressive as some of its other scores, this is really not a bad grade. In our long-term care grade, we look at the sheer volume of care provided by a nursing home, along with a series of quality metrics. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Finally, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
