Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a nursing score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. There are numerous datapoints within this category. Most of the datapoints reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a grade of B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Asbury Towers Health Care Center?
This facility received somewhat favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them a decent score in that area, with a grade of C. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you it avoided the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is certainly a major disappointment. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 71.13402 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
