Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its short-term care score. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This facility excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is an excellent sign. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in California in this area with 67 percent of its patients returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This score is based on the nursing home's government inspections. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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, H, I, J, K and L. This means 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. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our nursing grade assesses a handful of subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours. This facility boasts a really impressive 6 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was long-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B-. Even though this turned out to be its worst category score, this is nevertheless not a terrible score. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's personal care instead of the highly skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. Finally, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
