Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In this area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents at least once a day.
Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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.

Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was given a top-shelf score of A in our short-term care category. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
In the final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its long-term care grade. This topped off a very favorable report card. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
