Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second most respectable category was long-term care, but it still received a grade of just D in that category. This ended up being a well below average grade. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home vaccinated only 81.11702 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Carrington Place at Rural Retreat?
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a poor grade. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
