Best Nursing Home in Ventura, California Awards 2021
Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. In forming our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place California in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is long-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In the category of long-term care, we weigh the amount of services provided by a nursing home, rather than more medically-intensive services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
