Best Nursing Home in Stuart, Florida Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area 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
We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was awarded a strong score of A- in our long-term care category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this facility was awarded a strong short-term care score. We gave it a grade of B+ in that category, finishing off one of our more favorable report cards. Short-term care grades are generally employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
