To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its top-shelf assessments in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a score of A for its short-term care grade. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. This nursing home is above average both in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in the country in this area with 67.8 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded a high-end score of A in our long-term care category. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to locate this place's vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The next area we graded was this nursing home's weakest category. However, even its worst category would actually be a highlight for many facilities. In fact, we awarded it a strong grade of B in our nursing category. The nursing grade weighs several data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility boasts a really impressive 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in Florida in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
