Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which was among the highest figures we found. Finally, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it fared as well as any nursing home California in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care being provided.

This nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections. We gave it an A for that category. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.

Historical

Turning to the next area, this nursing home also earned a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of providing well above average levels of nursing care and other staffing, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.86363 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

The final category we assessed proved to be this nursing home's poorest category. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a decent grade of B- for short-term care. In determining these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
