Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received an impressive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 80.89172 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Accordius Health at Scotland Manor?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is short-term care. We gave it an F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is clearly a major concern. Our short-term care grades are arguably more critical for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
