Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really fared well in our long-term care category, where it received an A. Few facilities did better in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
In addition, this nursing home also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent government inspections. We awarded it an A for that area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Golden State Colonial Healthcare Center?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing category consists of several factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in that area. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
