Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B- in this category. In the category of long-term care, we assess the amount of care provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more sophisticated services. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.81306 percent of its residents. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we scored is short-term care. This facility was awarded a C in this category. With our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Grade: B-plus

In Boca Ciega Center, 2.82% of Patients had Serious Falls

Grade: A-minus

In Boca Ciega Center, 1.81% of Patients had UTIs
