Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of earning a great overall score, this facility performed even better in our inspections category which is associated with the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for this area, which is one of our best grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this nursing home also was awarded favorable long-term care grades this year. Indeed, we gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a score of B. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.85294 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.19 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a much lower hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Nursing scores are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. With 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the national average. Lastly, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the number of its patients sustaining falls which lead to serious injury, this facility performed as well as any nursing home in Florida.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. In computing these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 33.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
