Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the area of long-term care, with an A- in this area. This really helped its overall score quite a bit. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This facility also excelled in inspections, where it received an A-. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Ayers Nursing Home?
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. We assessed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for our short-term care category. This was the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Of course, this score hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. Short-term care scores are meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this facility was subpar in the two key staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
