Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
The second best area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 93.79845 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Autumnwood Care Center?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. The nursing score assesses quite a few datapoints, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. 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. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care, which was a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D for short-term care. Our short-term care grades are likely most meaningful for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
