Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our short-term care scores are likely most important for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms 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. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 69.1 percent of its residents returning home.
This facility also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This is based on the nursing home's inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provides an incredible 6 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the state in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last category we assessed, this nursing home was awarded a very favorable grade of A in our long-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home wrapped up a straight A profile. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate this place's vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
