Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items 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.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this facility fared very well in our short-term care rating. We awarded them a dominant grade of A+ in this category. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This place is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. The facility offered roughly 50% more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Utah in this area with 65.6 percent of its patients returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was awarded an impressive score of A in our long-term care category. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents 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 the last category, this nursing home also was given an impressive nursing score, with a B+. This finished off an elite report card. There are several factors included in this category. Many of these criteria are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the state in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care offered.
