Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. In computing our nursing ratings, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This particular facility provided 5.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This was one of the highest figures we found. In addition, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. In addition to offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in Florida in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered.

Historical

This nursing home also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare places to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This is based on the facility's government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Historical

The third area we graded was long-term care. This facility was given an impressive long-term care score, with a B+ in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After considering the impressive nursing hours and other staffing provided by this nursing home, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This combination proved to be effective as this facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

The next category we rated is short-term care, where this nursing home received a B-. While this wound up being its least impressive category rating, this is still a middle of the pack score. Short-term care grades are often used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 19.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of residents return home so this facility is below average.
