In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provides an incredible 5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
Short-term Care Quality
To complement its dominant achievements in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a valuable barometer 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 occupational therapy. This nursing home excelled in two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
This nursing home also received excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in that category, with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B. This actually proved to be this facility's worst area. A facility is doing something right when it's lowest score still is better than most facilities. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
