In addition to earning a great overall score, this nursing home also received an excellent short-term care grade, with an impressive grade of A. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is considered to be a fair measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. This was more of a strength for this facility. This place performed as well as just about any nursing home in California with 70.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

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 is based on quite a few datapoints, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The fourth area we scored is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This topped off a very favorable report card. Very few facilities received a B+ or higher in every category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
