On top of receiving a strong overall rating, this nursing home also received an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its dominant profile, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, it received a grade of A- for that category. Short-term care grades are commonly used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. This nursing home performed much better in the final datapoint we assessed in this category, which was the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Florida in this metric with 56.8 percent of its patients returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of the short-term patients ever return home.
Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. In this category, we gave this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This ended up being this facility's weakest category. In determining our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living offered to the facility's residents. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted vaccination data. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.09 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.
