Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its next highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our long-term care scores are more critical for people requiring more traditional services related to personal care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Carroll House?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our nursing score includes quite a few datapoints, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of short-term care, making this the facility's least impressive category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
