Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. This facility excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is an excellent 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 nursing homes in the nation with 79.3 percent of its patients returning home.
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. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 6.8 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This was one of the higher totals we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in Arizona in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home excelled in our long-term care category as well. We awarded them an elite score of A+ in this category. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. It does not look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In addition, this nursing home also received a virtually flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. With this impressive grade, this place is one of the few nursing homes in Arizona to earn straight A's. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
