Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This facility provides an incredible 6 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in California when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
This high end nursing home also fared very well in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One reason for this place's strong score in this category is it provides more care from registered nurses to its residents than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who returned to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation in this area with 68.2 percent of its residents returning home.
Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a decent long-term care score. Even though this was not nearly as strong as a few of its other grades, this is really not a major area of concern. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. It does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Finally, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
