Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.03846 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Auburn Skilled Nursing and Rehab?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final area we scored. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category. Despite some decent grades in other areas, this score is still concerning so we wanted to make a note of it. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Based on its weak score in this category, we were not shocked to learn that this place provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
