On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its first-rate resume, this facility also received an excellent short-term care score, with a score of A. In computing these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in the nation with 66.7 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.
Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our nursing grade weighs many datapoints, however, the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 place 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 system of moving a resident more often.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home received a strong long-term care grade. We gave it a grade of B+ in this category, rounding out one of our finer report cards. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
