To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. Inspection scores are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a patient even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's higher category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. Our short-term care grades are important for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, this facility was awarded a respectable long-term care grade of B-. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
