Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this area. In forming these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. It does not appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Ashton Health and Rehabilitation?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. When computing our nursing scores, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This place offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade here as well. It received a lowly F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 96.57321 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
