Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this category. Sadly, this ended up being its second best grade. Our short-term care grades are presumably more important for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its abysmal rating in this category, we weren't stunned to learn this facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Avamere Rehabilitation of Junction City?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. We looked at the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with patients, in calculating our grade in this area. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is long-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 65.15151 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
