Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was terrible, it performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next most favorable category is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 46.99074 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Accordius Health at Salisbury?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing rating weighs a host of subcategories. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next area, this facility really didn't perform well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. As you might expect, we found that this facility offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
