Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This place excelled in two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than a typical nursing home. This is definitely an excellent sign. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in California in this area with 73.2 percent of its residents returning home.
This facility also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This grade is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We were not able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. The nursing grade assesses many factors, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided 5.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the highest totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these statistics. In addition to offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in California in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
In the final category we assessed, this nursing home received a very strong grade of A in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility rounded out a straight A report card. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
