Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection ratings are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.041534 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 Florida in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. We gave this facility a D for short-term care, rendering this its worst grade. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. It appears that this place was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.1 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
