Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best category turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was given a C. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Borger Healthcare Center?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. When calculating our nursing grades, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last area, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Short-term care grades are commonly used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Based on its poor score in this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this facility provides substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
