Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a C for our short-term care rating. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating and that actually turned out to be its second best score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 97.37705 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Does this page answer your questions about Autumn Lake Healthcare at Greenfield?
This nursing home received really weak government inspection reports in recent years, causing them to receive an F for inspections. An F in this area is typically a sign that we found some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. For facilities that received this poor of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently of over $100,000. This often indicates that a bad performance has been an issue for several years.
Switching gears to the last category, this facility really didn't fare very well in this area either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
