Short-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our short-term care grades are probably most critical for folks requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in District of Columbia in this area with 68.6 percent of its residents returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing scores are primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 7.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This was one of the higher figures we found. In addition, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for that category. Our inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed proved to be this facility's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it an acceptable grade of B- in our long-term care category. Our long-term care scores are more important for residents needing more conventional assistance associated with activities of daily living.
