Registered Staff Hours
Although this place's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable score is long-term care, but it nevertheless received just a D in that category. This is still a relatively poor score. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.2674 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Does this page answer your questions about Autumn Care of Biscoe?
This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing grade weighs a handful of components, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is an abysmal score. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is often a solid measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade in this range for this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility was well below average in many staffing figures we looked at. It offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
