Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home received a nursing score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 Florida in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a resident even once per day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

We would also like to draw your attention to this nursing home's strong inspection grade. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this facility a decent score in the category of short-term care, where it received a C. Short-term care ratings are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our next category is long-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a C in this category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 99.7319 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
