Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category, where it received an A. In computing these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home California in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning patients at least once a day.
Long-term Care Quality
In our final category, this facility also was awarded an impressive long-term care grade, with a grade of A. This finished off a very favorable profile. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
