Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This place excelled in two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than a typical nursing home. This is definitely an excellent sign. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in California in this area with 70.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 9.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Historical

In the next area we analyzed, this nursing home was given high marks in the category of long-term care. As a result, it was given one of our best grades in that category with a of A+. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an impressive grade of A. This finished off a straight A report card for this facility. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't 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.
