Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This score is much more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
The second highest category we gave this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.23372 percent of its patients. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Ashford Hall?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. The nursing score weighs a number of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This particular nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This number is far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in that category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Considering its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.3 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
