Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. The nursing rating includes quite a few subcategories, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 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 nursing home California 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 employing a protocol of moving patients even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it excelled in the area of inspections, with a B in that category. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at is long-term care, in which this facility was given a C. While this wound up being its poorest category score, this is nevertheless not a major area of concern. With our long-term care score, we focus more on the sheer quantity of services offered by a nursing home, along with a series of quality data points. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. It does not look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
