While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This high end nursing home also performed well in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This place is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. The facility provided roughly one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical nursing home. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Arizona in this area with 72.9 percent of its patients returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also fared very well in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Few facilities fared better in this category. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Moving on to our next area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the nursing category. We gave it an A- in this area. This topped off truly elite report card. When calculating our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provided 5.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by these figures. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care offered.
