In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other achievements is its first-rate long-term care score. It received one of our most favorable grades in that category, with a score of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. This facility fared favorably enough in these measures to receive an impressive score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores this year. In fact, we gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B+. With our short-term care rating, we try to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. This facility performed much better in the final metric we assessed in this category, which was the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It performed as well as just about any nursing home in Arizona with 67.4 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, less than half of the short-term residents are able to return home.
Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a decent nursing rating. Even though this wasn't nearly as elite as several of its other scores, this is really nothing to be ashamed of. Our nursing score is largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.1 hours per resident per day. This is well above average. Lastly, we also looked at a few nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Arizona in this category.
