Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also want to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was given an impressive grade of A- in our short-term care area. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This place performed as well as just about any facility in Florida in this area with 57.4 percent of its patients returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In computing our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is far more care than what is provided by most facilities. Finally, this place was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this category. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored is this nursing home's weakest category. However, even its weakest link would actually be a highlight for many facilities. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in our long-term care category. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to providing elite levels of nursing care and other staffing, this nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to 99.66555 percent of its residents. This percentage is also significantly better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.36 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes since it had some more complicated patients.
