Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid facilities that have a long list of severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable category was its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of C. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for patients needing more traditional services related to personal care. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated just 90.607735 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Autumn Care of Norfolk?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was short-term care. We gave it an F for this category, which is a very poor score. In forming our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this facility offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
