Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of faring well in its overall grade, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our best grades in this area with an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To add to its dominant achievements in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A- for its short-term care grade. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is frequently a reliable measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. This place offered more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Florida in this area with 57.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our better grades in our long-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.22992 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. The last statistic we assessed is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.53 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the final category, this nursing home received a strong nursing score. While this isn't as impressive as many of its other scores, this is still one of our more favorable scores a facility can receive. Our nursing rating consists of many factors, however, the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Roughly a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. Both are impressive figures, which typically corresponds with quality care. Lastly, we also looked at nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
