On top of being a quality facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B+. In determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third most favorable area is its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to find this facility's vaccination rates. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.37 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than the majority of nursing homes since it had some more complex patients.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next category, this facility was awarded a grade of C for short-term care, which is generally an acceptable rating. Our short-term care scores are presumably more critical for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 29.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
