Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. 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. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't grade out terribly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B- in that area, which is among its higher grades. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Albany Health & Rehabilitation Center?
We were surprised to find that this facility also excelled in nursing. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing scores are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a very poor score. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
