Historical

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is generally a reliable assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in California in this area with 64.9 percent of its patients returning home.

In addition, this nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A-. Inspection scores are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent government inspections. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Historical

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. Nursing ratings are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides an incredible 5.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place also fared well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its patients sustaining falls which lead to serious injury, this place performed better than the national average. This is often a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The next area we looked at is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of C. This actually is this nursing home's weakest category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. This facility's vaccination statistics weren't as favorable as its number of nursing hours per resident. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 83.098595 percent of its patients. We'd love to see some improvement in this area next year. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
