Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a poor overall score, we also awarded this nursing home terrible scores in each of the categories. In fact, it only received a grade of just D for its inspections rating, which was its top area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we want to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This typically means that a poor performance spanned several years.
Short-term Care Quality
Included in this facility's host of poor scores was its F in the category of short-term care. Short-term care grades are generally used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Carlinville Rehabilitation and Health Care Center,?
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. In calculating our nursing grades, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
