We were able to find only one nursing home in La Jolla, California. We were relieved to discover that, this place's lone nursing home received a first-rate grade of A-, so at least there is one quality option. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of National City. We found the facility in La Jolla to be in a totally different league than most of the nursing homes in National City. The best aspect of this facility's strong profile was its nursing score. Nursing grades are discussed in the following paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing home received a strong overall grade, but we awarded them an impressive grade of A in nursing. Nursing ratings are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility also really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Wrapping up its profile, the city received grades of A and B- for our short-term care and long-term care categories respectively. Setting aside its long-term care grade, this place's other three grades were outstanding.
