Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this place an A- for the area of inspections. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without complete information regarding deficiencies, it ended up being difficult to assess the place in the inspections category.

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing grade is largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility 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 policy of turning residents more frequently.

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category.
