Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis.

This facility vaccinated 99.2647 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a score of A+. This was one of the few places to receive multiple A+ category grades. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Places that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing rating considers a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we analyzed proved to be this facility's worst area. Nevertheless, even its weakest link would actually be a strength for many facilities. We gave it an above average grade of B for short-term care. Our short-term care scores are meaningful for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
