Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home truly excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Anderson Nursing Center?
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. The nursing grade assesses a handful of components, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is short-term care. We awarded it a C in that category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Short-term care scores are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
