Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility California in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of long-term care. As a result, it was given one of our most impressive grades in that area with a grade of A+. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home fared well in the category of short-term care also. Consequently, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our better grades. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

In the final category we assessed, this facility earned a decent score in the area of inspections as well. We awarded it a B- for that category. This facility didn't have any major weaknesses. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Surprisingly, this nursing home was assessed a category L deficiency, which is not what we expected based on its inspection grade. This category means CMS identified a widespread deficiency putting resident safety or health in imminent danger. Even a single serious deficiency of this nature should be taken seriously. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.
