Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for its inspection grade. This is far better than the facility's overall rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities next best category is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.95501 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Alden Terrace of Mchenry Rehab?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing score is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. This is clearly a significant disappointment. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
