Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a strong facility overall, it also received A+ government inspections in recent years. Its inspections are virtually perfect. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This first-rate facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home California in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our third area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care score. This is a dominant grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is considered to be a solid measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at was long-term care, where this facility received a grade of B-. This actually was this nursing home's worst category. This is still not a major area of concern. Our long-term care ratings are more important for residents needing more conventional services associated with personal care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
