Historical

In addition to being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really excelled at short-term care, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. This nursing home is above the national average both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in California in this area with 71 percent of its patients returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Our nursing score assesses quite a few components, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 5.3 hours per patient each day. This is more nursing care than nearly any other nursing home offers. Finally, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, it fared as well as any nursing home the country when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these datapoints as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered.

Historical

Our last category is long-term care, in which we gave this facility a C in this category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were not able to track down this place's vaccination data. Finally, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
