Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. There are many datapoints included in this category. Most of these factors relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility received its next most favorable category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable score. Our long-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's volume of care. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 96.819786 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable statistic. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is certainly a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its poor rating in this area, we were not shocked to find that this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Ambassador Healthcare Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: A-plus

In Ambassador Healthcare, 7.63% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This is the percent of residents that sustained a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers, which are also referred to as bed sores, are routinely caused by patients staying in one position for too long. Better nursing care reduces the percentage of residents in a nursing home who sustain pressure ulcers.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: A

In Ambassador Healthcare, 3.89% of Patients had Serious Falls

This figure is a measure of the percent of long-term care residents who sustained falls which caused severe injury. Falls can arise for a variety of reasons, but excessive numbers of falls could be an indication of poor nursing care.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B

In Ambassador Healthcare, 1.96% of Patients had UTIs

This is the percent of residents who suffered from a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are considered to be a barometer of nursing care . UTI's are often associated with a facility with worst hygiene practices. However, this statistic could be skewed for certain nursing homes due to varying reporting standards for UTI's.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: C

In Ambassador Healthcare, 13.37% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This tells you the percentage of residents who were given antipsychotic drugs. While antipsychotic medications may be vital to many patients, it is important to confirm these medications are being used only where medically required. In some situations, increased usage of these drugs may indicate that a nursing home is using these medications to control patient behavior.

In Ambassador Healthcare, 21.6% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This is the percent of residents prescribed antianxiety medications. These drugs are generally prescribed to residents suffering from depression or anxiety.

In Ambassador Healthcare, 12.38% of Patients

This datapoint is a measure of the percentage of long-term patients demonstrating depressive symptoms. Many argue this is a reasonable measure of patient quality of care.

Appropriate Vaccine Usage

Grade: C

In Ambassador Healthcare, 91.56% of Patients

This indicates the percentage of patients that received the pneumonia and flu vaccines. Higher vaccination rates should be the norm at this point.

This is a measure of the number of times residents are rehospitalized per thousand days of short-term resident care. Minimizing rehospitalizations during rehabilitation is important to restoring the physical abilities of residents.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: A-minus

In Ambassador Healthcare, 11.23 Percentage of Patients

This indicates the number of times residents are sent to the emergency room per thousand days of short-term patient care. There is generally a correlation between keeping patients out of the emergency room and the overall quality of short-term care.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: B-plus

In Ambassador Healthcare, 73.53% Percentage of Resident

This metric measures the percent of short-term stay patients who saw functional improvements, such as with activities of daily living. Many believe that this is a reasonable measure of a facility's rehabilitation performance.
