Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we awarded it a B- for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care grades are vital for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being its second best grade. Inspection scores weigh many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. If you see too many deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had potential to create actual harm to residents. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually indicates that a nursing home'sbad track record has been an issue for several years.
Does this page answer your questions about St George Bella Terra Nursing and Rehabilitation?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. There are many factors within this area. Most of the subcategories reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next area, this facility did not fare well here either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 94.81132 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
