One of the reasons this place turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is as good as it gets in this critical area. Our inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B+. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area turned out to be long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Long-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Lastly, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.56 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually ended up being this facility's least impressive category. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 25.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
