Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall score, this facility excelled in our shot-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a substantially greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in California in this area with 64 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent government inspections. Facilities that score well in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing category consists of many datapoints, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home offers high levels of nursing care, with an average of 3.9 hours per resident daily. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. Finally, this place was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. For example, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we graded is long-term care. We gave this facility a solid grade in that area, with a grade of B-. While this is not as dominant as a few of this nursing home's other scores, it is still a middle of the pack score. In a long-term care environment, 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. In addition to providing solid levels of nursing care and other staffing, this nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This percentage is better than the average nursing home. This combination proved to be effective as this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.8 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes since it had some more complicated patients.
