In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A+. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 7.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the highest 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 really impressed by both of these figures. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
In the next area we assessed, this nursing home was given elite marks in the category of long-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our most impressive grades in that area with a of A+. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at is short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This wrapped up a very strong report card. Not many nursing homes received a B+ or better in in each area we assessed. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This nursing home is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. It supplied approximately 50% more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. This is what we look for when assessing a facility in this category. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 28.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
