Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, this facility earned a B+ for short-term care. This is an above average grade in this category. In computing our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a substantially greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in California in this area with 58.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Adding to its strong resume, this nursing home earned a B for inspections. This is an above average score in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

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. When determining a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses are with patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility California in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we rated was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B. This facility ended up being strong in each category we looked at. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. The last statistic we assessed was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 2.95 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as favorable as most of its other scores in this area, this statistic can be skewed for some nursing homes due to some of the medical complexity of residents.
