One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its fine profile, this nursing home also was given an excellent short-term care score, with a score of A. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. It fared as well as just about any facility in Florida in this area with 62.3 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility also was given a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, this is this nursing home's third most impressive category score. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.55041 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. This facility was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. While it had 2.19 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having some more complex patients.
