To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. It doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received an A+ short-term care grade, rendering it one of the few nursing homes to be awarded multiple A+ category grades. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. This facility excelled at the highest level in two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in West Virginia in this area with 72.4 percent of its patients returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. When determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This facility boasts a really impressive 5.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the country when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these areas as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the final category, this facility also performed admirably in our long-term care category. In fact, we gave it an A in this category. This wrapped up a straight A profile. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. 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 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
