To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for our nursing score.

This nursing home boasts an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which more than an hour of those were provided by registered nurses. This is among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. Lastly, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it fared as well as any facility California in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Facility Inspections

A-

In addition, this nursing home received excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. 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

B+

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is typically a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

D

Moving on to our final category, we awarded this nursing home a D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's worst category score. Naturally, this grade hurt the facility's overall grade a bit. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. It does not appear that this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
