We also would like to note that this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Our nursing grade consists of several factors, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. This is among the highest totals of nursing hours we were able to find. In addition to offering high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in California in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
We also want to point out the fact that this nursing home was given an impressive score of A in our short-term care area. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is more often than not a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Remarkably, this nursing home provides approximately 1.5 times as many hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
We gave this nursing home an A for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed turned out to be this nursing home's poorest category. However, even its worst category would be a strength for many nursing homes. In fact, we gave it a favorable grade of B for our long-term care category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. It does not appear that this nursing home provided vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
