Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it was given a dominant long-term care score. In fact, long-term care turned out to be its second most favorable category score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-. Facilities that do well in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 94.909096 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about The Place at Martinez?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating is primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is obviously somewhat disappointing. Our short-term care grade is often used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
