Historical

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Historical

Compounding its elite accomplishments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care rating. With our short-term care grade, we seek to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. One of this facility's strengths is the number of hours of physical therapy offered. We found that it provides at least 1.5 times as many hours with physical therapists as most other facilities. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in California in this area with 58.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of elite nursing hour statistics, this facility's vaccination data is top notch as well. Indeed, it vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. The last statistic we looked at was its hospitalization rate. While it had 2.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was close to the middle of the pack since it had some more complicated patients.

The next category we scored is nursing. We gave this nursing home one of our more favorable scores in this category, with a grade of B. While this is not on par with several of this nursing home's other scores, it is still a perfectly acceptable score. Our nursing score consists of a handful of factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the highest totals we found. Lastly, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality measures we assessed. For example, in terms of the percentage of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided with better nursing care and having a policy of regularly turning residents to avoid bed sores.
