Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility some really poor grades. Among them were its F for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 52.977413 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. While it had 2.41 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric wasn't as bad due to it having some more complicated patients. This was its best feature in this category

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. There are a variety of subcategories included in this grade. Many of the datapoints relate to nurse staffing. This place averaged only 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. To go along with its below average total nursing hours per patient, this facility had poor scores in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining falls which led to major injury. This place was at more than 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to point out that this facility received a lowly F for its inspection rating. An F in this category is alarming because it generally points to red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. When a place has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade in this area as well. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. It looks like this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 45.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

In Alamance Health Care Center, 11.5% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication
