Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it an A- for our inspections score. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this facility a grade of C for its short-term care grade, which really isn't too bad of a score. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Ashton Health and Rehabilitation?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is long-term care. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in this category. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 97.1875 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
