Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its respectable grades. The nursing home was given a C in this area. Short-term care ratings are critical for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Albany Health & Rehabilitation Center?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
