Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Surprisingly, we awarded this nursing home a C for our long-term care grade, which is not a bad grade. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.4012 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Care Inn of La Grange?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
