Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home an A- for our long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. With our short-term care category, we try to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Selma Health and Rehab?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. The nursing rating consists of many components, but the main one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.
The final category we looked at is inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this nursing home's worst grade. We gave it just a D in this category. Since this information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our assessment. Our inspection scores factor in many items on the facility's inspection reports. If you see too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently in excess of $50,000. This generally signifies that government inspectors became frustrated after several years of bad government inspections.
