Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall score. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second highest category is its long-term care grade, where it was given a B-. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about California Post-Acute Care?
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed several category G through L deficiencies, which are among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had the potential to cause actual harm to residents. Finally, this facility also received 19 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we scored was short-term care, where this facility received a very poor grade in this area also. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2.7 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
