We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provides an incredible 5.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these datapoints as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care provided.

The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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.

The third area we analyzed was long-term care. This facility was superb in our long-term care rating as well. We gave them an exemplary grade of A+ in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 94.69697 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care grade. We gave it an A- in that area, giving this facility straight A's. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is generally a meaningful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. One of this facility's strengths is it provides more than an hour of care per day from registered nurses per patient. This is really the gold standard in this area, as it's roughly 50% higher than the average nursing home's level of registered nurse staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
