Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 69.67742 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Does this page answer your questions about Ada Care Center?
This nursing home received mediocre inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of C in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that it dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we rated was short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Our short-term care grades are probably most meaningful for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
