In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few facilities performed this well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
To complement its impressive performance in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A- for its long-term care score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe.

Turning to our third category, this nursing home also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. This place is significantly above the national average in terms of its quantity of both registered nurse and physical therapy hours available to its residents. In fact, it provided about 50% more care per patient from both of these groups of skilled professionals than the typical facility provided. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
In our final area, we awarded this facility a A+ for its nursing score. This completed a very strong profile. Our nursing score assesses quite a few data points, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided 7.8 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the more impressive figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by these statistics. In addition to offering impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in Florida when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
