Registered Staff Hours
This facility's best category grade came in the area of inspections. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have very few severe 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. Based on this, we had a generally positive view of this facility's recent inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a positive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Ash Flat Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
