Long-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ long-term care grade. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 93.75 percent of its patients. This is a few points below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our nursing score is primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 4.8 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the better figures 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 very impressed by both of these statistics. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality measures we assessed.
