Historical

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

An additional strength of this nursing home is its very impressive score in long-term care. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of offering very impressive levels of nursing care and other staffing, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.60784 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.93 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most nursing homes since it had some more complicated patients.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. The nursing rating features several factors. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This place provided 7.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is among the better totals in California. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality measures, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area.

Historical

The next category we assessed was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grades are vital for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
