Best Nursing Home in Ventura, California Awards 2020
Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many positive things to say about this nursing home's overall score, it earned a respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Does this page answer your questions about Ventura Post Acute?
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest area came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is a fair grade in this area. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
