Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in this category with an A-.

Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B+. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Florida in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a decent score in the category of long-term care, with a grade of B-. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 40.999996 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D in short-term care, leaving this as the nursing home's worst grade. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. It looks like this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we considered. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
