Long-term Care Quality
One of the main reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive long-term care score. In fact, long-term care is its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 95.696724 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the senior population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Another strong feature for this facility was inspections, where it earned a B in that area. It performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Florida Living Nursing Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. There are numerous factors included in this area. Many of the criteria reflect levels of nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, this facility was given a decent short-term care grade of B-. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like 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 item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
