Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also performed well in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A+. Very few nursing homes fared as well in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received an A+ for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This facility excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical facility. This is often an encouraging sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation in this area with 78.4 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning our third category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for its long-term care score. This is a dominant grade. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down this place's vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In our last category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing score. This finished off a first-rate profile. The nursing grade weighs several subcategories, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per patient per day. About a quarter of these hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours performed by these types of nurses more in computing our nursing grades. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
