Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional reason we rated this facility so favorably is that it was given an A+ short-term care grade. This is flat out as elite as it gets in this area. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received a strong grade of A in our long-term care category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Moving on to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has received quality inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a score of B in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
