Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next best area we gave this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's amount of nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 85.2861 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is several points lower than what we expected. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Calvert County Nursing Center?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing grade consists of quite a few components, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This is the facility's worst category rating. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
