Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Compounding its impressive performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care rating. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On the whole this looks like a good option in terms of its long-term care rating.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our third category, this nursing home was given a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in this area. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home also performed well in the nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in this area. This wrapped up a very strong report card. The nursing category analyzes many subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving patients even once per day.
