Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Remarkably, this facility provides roughly 50% more hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in New York in this area with 64 percent of its residents returning home.
This nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This grade is based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Few facilities received a better grade in this area. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The final category we assessed is nursing, where this facility received a grade of A. This wrapped up a first-rate profile. Not many facilities received an A- or better in all four categories. In determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This place provided 6.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. In addition to offering impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in New York in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
